18. The U.S. Senate has been berry, berry good to Mr Blum and his wife.

 

There are not that many professions where one can expect a 40 year lucky streak that can propel an upper-middle class housewife to a personal fortune in excess of $70M, and a spouse that can successfully avoid several federal investigations for mind-bogglingly lucky foreign investments, particularly when one's primary wealth comes from government contracts.

Truly, their story is a tribute to the wonder that is the American system.
